The Center for Digital Research in the Humanities (CDRH) at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln (UNL) is a joint initiative of the University Libraries and the College of Arts & Sciences.
The Center advances interdisciplinary collaborative research in the humanities by creating unique digital content, developing tools for scholarly discovery (from reference resources to data-mining), and encouraging the use (and refinement) of international standards for humanities computing. CDRH offers forums, workshops, and research fellowships for faculty and students in the area of digital scholarship.
Though the primary responsibility of the Center is to work with humanists, the CDRH will provide advice to faculty in the social sciences and sciences engaged in interdisciplinary projects that may cross over into the humanities.
Activities of the Center include:
Project planning: Structuring the project, intellectual property rights, planning for migration or sustainability, and planning issues relating to funding and staffing digital projects.
Technical Assistance: The Center can provide help in encoding metadata, digital resources design, scanning, and stylesheets.
Equipment and Software: Workstations; scanners; a digital camera; and software for optical character recognition, for digital imaging, and for XML authoring are available for approved research projects. Contact Brian Pytlik Zillig (2-4547) or Katherine Walter (2-3939) for information.
Workshops and roundtables: Each semester, workshops are offered on planning digital research projects, introduction to XML, and intermediate XML. Additional workshops can be arranged. The Center offers forums and speakers relating to digital research and the creation of digital content. Information about these events is posted on our online calendar.
Digital Innovation funding: Fellowship competitions for qualified UNL humanities faculty are offered each spring for the following academic year. The successful application will receive an award of $20,000 for an 18 month project. Click here for more information.
Scanning: Within legal copyright guidelines and staffing availability, the Center will scan images or text for digital research projects.
